U.S. Prevents Spanish Bank from Offering Services to Cuba

How is it possible that two months after the visit to Havana of President Barack Obama, last March, a subsidiary of the Santander bank in Catalonia tells the Cuban consul in Barcelona that they could not put an outlet to facilitate users the payment of consular tariffs through magnetic cards, asked Martinez.

The release says the explanation given then by the largest financial entity in Spain was they could not render that service according to an agreement signed with Elavon, U.S. company handling credit and debit cards of the U.S. Bancorp Bank.

Also, a subsidiary of the same bank in Seville, Andalusia region, canceled on June 1 a contract signed on May 12 with the Cuban Consulate in that city to have an outlet because Elavon said U.S. restrictions on the island prevented it from doing so, said the note.
